The Virtual DJ

We all love our iPod/Nomad/etc., but I have an for a feature that could enhance any of them: a “virtual DJ” option.

With this option turned on, at the beginning of each song, the MP3 player would drop the volume of the music slightly and announce the artist name, the song title, and the album title for the song that’s starting to play. Yesterday when I was driving while listening to my Nomad on “shuffle” a bunch of songs I didn’t recognize came on and I had to take my eyes off of the road to look down on the display to see what they were. With a “virtual DJ” option, I would have been good to go.

And maybe they could offer a Casey Kasem voice…

It only took 11 years!

What is this then?
